to be moderated by mike lucks and tonya tarr. we are going to be asking for questions through twitter. you can use the hash tag, dean and end or right it down on pieces of paper and there will be people going around and collecting them. so mike, who is one of the moderators, is -- he worked on the obama transition team as a liaison to the progressive community, he worked in the clinton administration, and he co-founded the wonderful blog, open left. tonya is the director of legislative and political mobilization with the texas american federation of teachers. and she has previously worked for afsme-cio. so without further ado, i would like to introduce my friend, dr. howard dean. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> do you want to start with some opening remarks. >> sure. i'm really looking forward to this. let me just say a couple things. first of all, the people in this room are going to be the most important people in america over the next 8 to 10 weeks while we get this thing done, because we're seeing extraordinary things being said that are flatout not true, there's maliciously untrue and the onl
's get on to our first guest of the show. joining us, paul day and makio camada from lgt capital. let's start by talking with, well, both of you about what's going on with this inflation/deflation picture. paul, let's start with you. do you believe we're in an inflationary or deflationary environment at the moment? >> well, i think that the inflation seem to be the ones that shout the loudest. my view is going forward for the next half of the year, deflation will be the big problem. it's something we've never seen in the west historically. so i don't think people have the perception of what deflation can do for the economy. if you look at the household deleverage, it's going to carry on going on in the united states. i feel that the deflation argument will continue. if you look at things, for example, the length of unemployment in the states seems at the highest level since 1958. we've got many, many mortgage resets coming along at a time when real bond yields are at their highest level since around 1994. i think we will have sluggish rates. >> paul, where do you stand? >> i think i m
with the very latest tonight. what can you tell us. >>reporter: well we are live at the corner of north calvert and east meddle street. people who live in the neighborhood call it a dangerous intersection. they say car accidents happen here frequently and of course the latest crash involved michael phelps. now police say a woman driving a honda accord ran a red light and crashed into phelps cadillac escalade suv. now it happened just before 9:00 o'clock last night. police say the honda driver was shaken up. a witness snapped this picture of phelps at the scene sitting on the ground talking with police. he was not hurt. and neither were the 2 passengers. now witnesses say the impact struck the parked car and took out a mailbox at the corner. man walking his dog saw the crash and phelps when he stepped out of the vehicle. >> he was holding his back and limping but they offered himmel attention he said no i'm actually fine. he was walking around bare foot which i thought was a little odd but he was all right. >>reporter: now in 2004 phelps pled guilty to drunk driving charge. mar
in other words, dealing with one problem here as opposed to 100 problems is what you are asking us to do. >> please. >> thank you for coming. my question would be, what could you do to get the government out of our lives and let us use our god-given ability and talent to make things better for everyone. >> i suppose the easiest answer would be just to vote no on new programs. i think there are a lot of things out there already this year than to have the pill. .. i have found it easier to stop -- to cause problems for not getting larger and not establishing new problems and i found it to do with older programs. programs. being a person wants to limit government, i found the best way to do it was through the taxing policy. if you limit the money coming into the federal treasury, you will limit what can be spent to some extent. you are still having overspending. i do not by the principal that an increase the dollar of taxes is a dollar reduction in expenditures -- in the deficit. a dollar increase in taxes does not result in a dollar decrease in deficits. what it results in is probabl
in the u.s. surpassing credit card transactions for the first time ever. but as stephanie dhue reports, for consumers, the trend has its pluses and minuses. >> reporter: josh clark is among the increasing number of americans who are choosing debit over credit. he made the switch three months ago, after maxing out his credit card while starting a designer jean business. >> i realized if i put something on my credit card, i'm going to be paying interest on it until i can fully repay it. >> reporter: tight credit is also encouraging more debit card use. and consumers are using it to manage their money. clark says it helps him control spending. >> i check my bank account more frequently than i check my credit card account, so i'm more in tune with how much money i have to spend. >> reporter: as debit card use surpasses credit cards that presents new challenges for both consumers and regulators. debit cards come with fewer built-in protections. consumer advocate ed mierzwinski warns in the case of a lost or stolen card number, the debit card holder can be on the hook for much more than if a
, what can you tell us at this hour. >> jeff and jennifer, live at north calvert and east bittle. police clearing the scene now it was a two car collision. michael phelps and two passengers were traveling in a black cadillac escalade. a woman was driving the other car. the accident happened just before 9:00 tonight. investigators say phelps was traveling east on bittle. the woman was driving north on calvert. the two vehicles collided. and now police are trying to determine exactly what happened. >> we know that there was a collision. two cars driving and collided at the intersection. we will find out if alcohol was a factor. look at red lights. put it altogether. we are literally talking to them as we speak. >> we are back here live. clearing michael's escalade otto truck, and other vehicle behind it. police are now telling us that alcohol was not a factor. phelps was not hurt. he has been questioned. and released. meantime, paramedics did take the woman to the hospital. as a plea caution. again, a collision here in downtown baltimore. involving michael phelps. a woman is hurt. michael
costing us all.. a lot more in the long run. experts say we're already seeing higher interest rates.. and in the future? possibly even fees on customer service of all things. consumers are already bracing for major changes with their credit cards....considering how card companies are reacting to the tougher rules. i think twice.. if i had 500 dollars.. i ask would i spend cash before i charge it.. i hope a lot of people are.. and you are? absolutely starting next thursday - consumers will see new protections in place... for example, your credit card issuer must notify you in writing 45 days before making changes to the interest rate.. or any other major terms. and companies must mail monthly statments at least 21 days before the bill is due. experts say you should be paying close attention to any mail from your credit card company. "it's important to open it and see what the changes are... if you don't understand them . give a credit card issuer a call and ask them." experts say these new rules on credit card companies are going to affect everyone.. even excellent customers.. are
very hard to sell his health care plan. there is a lot for us to hear. we have seen across the country. mickey personal experience -- appearances is a great idea. except he is going to up to tell the public what he wants. as of yet, he is not told the public what he wants. instead, rumor is flying everywhere. fear is flying everywhere. and loathing of what ever this plan is is flying everywhere. >> julie, is the problem with the president that he never told us what he wanted? >> he did want to avoid the mistakes of the clinton era and let congress becomes stakeholders by crafting the bill. we have five different bills as a result. no one has really read them. there are rumors, and the white house is lost control. >> a lot of people are running around the country thinking they know what is in the. >> yes, crying and sobbing. it is ridiculous. it is like the immigration and social security debate. it makes you wonder if it will get derailed like those two. >> the you think we will see reform in health care of this congress this year? >> i think it is impossible until now. what we are see
these days. what is happening? . u.s. steel workers union in a conference call. he claimed that pittsburgh has snagged these big events because of its excellent record in labor and business relations, public/private partnerships -- they went back over the whole they went back over the whole story of our renaissance that 1950's and said it has all led up to today. frankly, there are probably other reasons why we got picked to be the site of the g-20 summit. i still have not figured the not yet, but i am assuming that we are attractive because we are perceived as a green city. we have a convention center which i believe was the first leed-certified convention center in the world. many buildings around town have been greened in that regard, so they are impressed by those efforts by arrest belt city to raise its environmental profile. also, i think barack obama has some pretty fond memories of pittsburgh. in the pennsylvania primary he spent a lot of time here last spring in the state and came to the city a few times. and also we do have a fairly strong labor presence here. i'm just speculatin

with us for the next hour. whether or not we are going to get health care reform at last in this country depends now mostly on the united states senate. the top republican in the united states senate on health care reform is this man. >> i think the best thing to do is want to get people to think about ending life, number one, place to start. the physical life. opposed to eternal life. it ought to be done within the family and considered religious and ethical issue and not something politicians need restricted. >> not something politicians deal with. top republican in the senate on the issue of health care. iowa senator chuck grassley and he says what happens at the end of your life is something for -- within your family. not something politicians should deal with. big round of applause for him on that. honestly, though, can you imagine that something as important as a person's circumstances at the capital end would be something politicians would even think they have to right to comment on? let alone intervene in. can you even imagine that? >> extraordinary circumstances like this, it is
